We run a comprehensive Blood Borne Virus (BBV) service across the county, which offers treatment and support for patients with Hepatitis B and C, including those co-infected with HIV.
We offer full assessments which includes a diagnostic service, fibroscan and other imaging with access to all available therapies, as per NICE guidelines, including the potential to enter into clinical trials as appropriate.
We have clinics based at the Alexandra Hospital in Redditch, Kidderminster Hospital and Treatment Centre and Worcestershire Royal Hospital.
We take referrals from GPs and patients who wish to transfer their care to a local centre. The clinical lead is Dr Mark Roberts, Consultant Physician in Infectious Diseases and General Medicine.
Our BBV nursing team is based at Worcestershire Royal Hospital, practising countywide. Our aim is to deliver a seamless service with an excellent track record in supporting patients through treatment.
The BBV screening service works in collaboration with drug and alcohol services. In the community setting our team offer BBV screening and Hepatitis B vaccinations. Any clients who require further treatment link directly into the acute service.
Education, training, staff support and harm reduction is paramount to the success of our service.
Please contact our clinical nurse specialists or Dr Roberts’ secretary for more information or advice.
